Back of Book:
Follow elephants, pigs, monkeys, hippos, and more in this charming rhyming picture book from veteran author Kate McMullan. How does a pig take a bath? It sinks in the mud! What about a chicken? It thrashes about in dust! And a cat? Why, it licks itself clean, of course! Sydney Hanson’s adorable illustrations toggle neatly between animals in nature grooming themselves and humorous depictions of children attempting the animals’ bathing tactics.
I received a copy of this book from Alfred A. Knopf in exchange for an honest review.
I a completely in love with this charming story about the different ways that animals take baths. Author Kate McCullan chose several different types of animals and gave readers a variety of different animals to show readers the unique ways that animals bathe. The simple rhyming text is perfect for beginning readers. I love at Kate compared the animal’s way of bathing to how we bathe. This simple concept allows readers to compare and contrast the animals and themselves. The illustrations from Sydney Hanson are nothing short of enduring. The colors are soft and draw a readers eye to the adorable antics on each page. This is a perfect book to cuddle up with before bedtime and enjoy the giggles.
